During its Olympic Games qualification tournament, the US finished 9-2 at the 2011 FIVB World Cup in Japan to secure the silver medal in November.

Hugh McCutcheon has mentored the side to an 85-37 record in his three years after leading the US men’s team to the 2008 Olympic Games gold medal.

They finished the 2011 season with a 39-10 record. Among the team’s highlights were picking up the silver medal at the FIVB World Cup, their second consecutive FIVB World Grand Prix title, capturing the NORCECA Women’s Continental Championship and winning the bronze medal at the Pan American Cup and Pan American Games.
